Betting on the Green Bay Packers (+11.0)
Regular Season Record: 3-4
Aaron Rodgers has never been a two-digit underdog in his NFL career, but that changes this week, with the Bills so favored to defeat Green Bay. But Rodgers is still hard to underestimate, regardless of opponent. He is the reigning two-time NFL MVP. He can turn the switch on anytime, and that could be in this marquee matchup where he suddenly shows up with his vintage form. Green Bay’s defense is also allowing just 168.9 passing yards per game – the best in the NFL.
The Packers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five Week 8 outings.
Betting on the Buffalo Bills (-11.0)
Regular Season Record: 5-1
There is no hiding the obvious that the Bills are among the favorites to win the Super Bowl. This is a team that has already defeated the likes of the reigning NFL champions Los Angeles Rams, the Baltimore Ravens, and the latest, the Kansas City Chiefs on the road, no less, to the tune of a 24-20 score back in Week 6 at Arrowhead Stadium. Josh Allen passed for 329 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions on 27/40 completions in that game. Stefon Diggs is going to be a problem for the Packers’ secondary. Plus, Buffalo’s defense is arguably the best in the NFL. Buffalo is No. 1 overall with just 13.5 points allowed and 281.5 total yards surrendered per game.
The Bills are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six games as the home team.
The Bills win, 31-22.
